I am sure you will all be celebrating from tonight onwards, so let’s make the most out of Bonfire’s Evening! Here are our top tips for a fantastic fireworks night.
Dress up for the occasion: it’s getting rather chilly outside, so ensure that you wrap up well. Scarves, gloves and thick coats are essential to staying warm away from the Bonfire.
Be safe – If you are going to an event, it should be marked where you can stand so that you are not near where the fireworks are being set off. The same works at home. Take note of the instructions set on the fireworks boxes.
Don’t forget your Thermos – get some lovely hot chocolate organised for everyone. Don’t forget your plastic cups and mugs: they are safer. If you drop them in the dark, they won’t smash everywhere and cause a hazard.
Build the Guy – You can all work together as a family to build a Guy to take to your local bonfire evening, using old clothes, newspapers and the like. Whilst there, you may find more items of clothes that you no longer use: why not donate these to charity?
Be eco-friendly – Do not burn household waste, as it can produce dangerous fumes. Also, did you know the closer you can build your Bonfire to lighting, the better (as it reduces the risk to animals!)
Fireworks Art – If you stay in, create your own fireworks show! Put sheets of black sugar paper down and flick coloured paints over them. Then just add glitter! (Adding PVA glue to the paint will help the glitter stick even better).
Yummy Treats – why not cut some bananas in half and place chocolate in the middle? Then, wrap in foil and warm in the embers! Make sure that a parent is the one handling the cooking!
